For Planters

MultipleChannelsOfControl

Multiple channels of control

Two channels allow the down force to be adjusted separately on the planter wings compared to the center section of the planter where there is more soil compaction. This is a big advantage over air bag systems that average down force across the entire toolbar



Response-Time-Comparison

Instant response time

Ag Leader’s Hydraulic Down Force system adjusts pressure instantly in changing soil types without the inconsistency created by pneumatic systems that respond over a longer period of time (and land). It could take an air bag system up to 20 seconds to inflate enough to create the proper down force, compared to one second with Ag Leader’s Hydraulic Down Force System. The difference? A quarter acre using a 24-row planter.
